No diference.Same flour for baking purpose.

Yes there is a difference, cake flour can't be used in substitution for bread flour or vice versa. I called one of the major flour companies and as I can't remember exactly all you have to do is the same, call the number on the bag.

I do not  think so.We use in our country bread flour for cakes too.But we do not get any diference.Some companies advertise their products for marketing purpose
as cake flour and bread flour.
Protein content in flour

bread flour 14 to 16%

all purpose 10 to 12%

pastry flour 9%

cake flour 7 to 8 %

To get a light and structure of cake you want a form of flour with very little protein.  For bread to form a chewy structure you need a high protein flour.
